School's Out For Summer

@ 05:30 AM

The Julian Center

Join LINC as we bring a little summer fun to the children of The Julian Center Shelter. Help us fill backpacks with cool summer essentials! Stick around and play Field Day games with the kids and celebrate the end of another school year.

We'll provide the backpack. We're asking you to bring just two (2) of the following items:

Count Crayons or Colored Pencils
Colored Construction Paper
Pocket Folders
Washable Glue-sticks
Small Kleenex Packs
Sidewalk Chalk

In addition to stuffing a summer backpack with your supplies, you'll also:

Decorate a backpack tag and write an encouraging note to a child
Pick out grade-level books from a collection of donations to include in your bag
Learn about services provided by The Julian Center and how your gift to United Way of Central Indiana supports great agency work

Snacks, beer and wine provided, courtesy of our friends at Monarch Beverage.

The Julian Center provides emergency shelter, counseling and other services for battered women and their children. Children participating in the Julian Center Summer Program are ages 6-16 years old and are at-risk or have been abused or neglected. Let's show them we care.
